Gemma Raeburn-Baynes knows what it means to give back. She seems to turn every opportunity in her life into an opportunity to help both the local community and the global one. On March 8th, 2014, this McGill alumna will be honoured for her 50 years of community activism.

Gemma Raeburn-Baynes was born in Grenada, but has lived most of her life in Montreal. Her island roots have definitely shaped her personality, as evidenced by her contributions to Montreal’s Taste of the Caribbean and Carifiesta events, but Ms. Raeburn-Baynes has also worked tirelessly to improve conditions for all people of colour both in Montreal and abroad.
